Hello this is Derric from Rebrandly[DOT]com, and today I wanted to show you how to use and setup tags on your links to help you kind of sort through the hundreds and hundreds of links that you might be creating for your business, or with other team members even inside your business.
So as you can see I'm in the Rebrandly[DOT]com dashboard - This is the Rebrandly-Rebrandly account, and we've got some links created here. So here's one that goes to a page on segment to have people upvote us - So maybe I want to go into this link and I want to tag it a little bit differently so that I know that it's from segment.
So I'd go into the link at the edit button, as you just saw. And you can see we hit the gear icon that pulls out our data tags currently in beta mode. This will be in full swing later. Then we're going to, because we don't have a tag yet, create a new tag called "segment". Choose a color, this one looks great, hit "create".
Now this tag sticks with us - We can save it, save the link again. And if we go back to our dashboard we will be able to see the color of the link and then if you hover over it you'll be able to see the name of it and then of course if you search "segment" in the search bar this link comes up of course it comes up, for two different reasons here, but the links are searchable and in just a short period of time you will also be able to show tags and sort by name so we will be able to filter from tags and have some advanced filtering features there so this could be handy if you wanted to have say list of things that are pieces of curated content versus our own blog site content versus sales-oriented thing versus stuff that we're going to share on social media, and the list goes on and on and on.
